What is Crocus

Crocus (scientific name: Crocus) is native to Mediterranean coast to Small Asia and is a cold-resistant perennial plant (bulb plant) of the Iridaceae Crocus genus. In early spring, it brings flowers with six petals with low plant height on the ground. The thin linear leaves also grow at the same time as flowering. The genus "Crocus" comes from the Latin "Krokos", which is due to the long stretching of the stamen in filiform form.
Representative varieties include Crocus vernus (purple flower) and Crocus chrysanthus (yellow flower). The flower language is "pleasure of youth".
